Daily Wire: The general manager of the NBA’s Houston Rockets, Daryl Morey, tweeted support for Hong Kong’s protestors. The protestors are marching against increasing governmental incursions by mainland China into Hong Kong’s affairs. When Great Britain handed Hong Kong over to China, China agreed to maintain autonomy for Hong Kong but now appears uninterested in keeping its promise.
Morey used the social media platform Twitter to voice his support for Hong Kong’s protestors. Twitter is blocked in China. There is not a man, woman or child in China — except for the communist agents censoring the internet there — who could have seen Morey’s tweet. But China demanded the NBA apologize.
The NBA is an organization unafraid to delve into “woke” American politics. The organization walked away from North Carolina merely because the state considered a ban on letting transgender people use bathrooms for the opposite sex. The organization decided to stop using the word “owner” for its teams because of woke politics. Multiple NBA team owners denounced pro-life and religious liberty legislation in the United States. Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr is famous for his pronouncements supporting every left-wing social justice cause imaginable.
Kerr had no comment about China. more …
Opinion: Globalists love communists and totalitarian regimes. They envision a perfect society made possible by human initiative.
Last week some friends of ours returned from a two-week trip to China to visit family related through marriage. Our friend praised Chinese society describing the people as very happy, friendly, peaceful, respectful of police, and seemingly very content to live in massive apartment complexes of 1000 sq. foot units. Even the wealthy.
When I asked about the Chinese social credit score, our friend replied, what is that? After sending her some information, the response was that it sounded ‘creepy’.
Our post April 27, 2018 “China is rolling out a high-tech plan to give all of its 1.4 billion citizens a personal score, based on how they behave.
But there are consequences if a score gets too low, and for some that’s cause for concern, CBS2’s Ben Tracy reported Tuesday.
When Liu Hu recently tried to book a flight, he was told he was banned from flying because he was on the list of untrustworthy people. Liu is a journalist who was ordered by a court to apologize for a series of tweets he wrote and was then told his apology was insincere.
“I can’t buy property. My child can’t go to a private school,” he said. “You feel you’re being controlled by the list all the time.”
China’s growing network of 200 million (going to 600 million) surveillance cameras makes all of this possible.”
Gates’ new company “Earth Now” will provide global satellite imagery and live video in real-time.
“Its unsettling pitch describes a network of satellites that can see any corner of the globe and provide live video with a latency of about a second. And a look at the startup’s top investors gives a lot of confidence that this thing is happening.”
While all this is creepy to most in the US, what many don’t know is that Donald Trump casually announced that the social credit score would be a way to determine who can buy a gun.
I like to call it infrastructure that is being built in preparation for the final dictator, because when he comes, he only has 7 years to fulfill a lot of prophecy.
“Thus he said:
‘The fourth beast shall be
A fourth kingdom on earth,
Which shall be different from all other kingdoms,
And shall devour the whole earth,
Trample it and break it in pieces.” Daniel 7:23
